Case/DB 990 with loader Posted by rndbale on 04/02/2012

I have owned mine for 30 years this July. I bought it with about 3300 hours on it and have used it for haying, firewood, bush hogging, snow removal and general farm chores.

In that time I have replaced the water pump, front wheel spindle (2x), batteries and other normal maintenance.

I have worked this tractor hard, although I also keep it shedded, run Shell synthetic Rotella (changed annually) and try not to do stupid things with it.
